Oh geez... yur gonna make me guess! Then it's gotta be the Star of Yelta or the Kniola's Black.... I'm guessing the SOY.

It's Kniola's Black... YOU WIN!!!

Actually I loose. Kniola's would have been the third guess. Did you have good luck with her? I grew her and the Grandpa Otts. The Kniola's bloomed much earlier and went all summer for me. Grandpa did Ok but took a while to get going. They look almost exactly alike. I thought Grandpa had a little more red in the throat tho.

Well I have another pic of KB and they look more purple than blue in this one! Go Figure!

I grew them in a pot and they did not bloom greatly...I grew Grandpa in the ground and on a trellis and they bloomed really good and GP did have more red in throat!

I am really baffled about the name IMPOMOEA PURPUREA...When the KB is Impomoea Tricolor...hmmmm, could I be wrong?

VERY PRETTY!!!!!! WOW! I never heard of that kind till a few days ago when someone was talking about them. I'll bet they looked wonderful, flowing and flowering all over the place!! Thanks for the posting! :) Share more!
